Fun in the sun

Hello everyone.

My card today was inspired by several challenges and my "need" to play with a Doodlebug pad that has been sitting on my desk for a little while.


This  little guy is called Hoppy Days and was coloured with Promarkers. The scene was made using the papers and some dies. Even the tag was cut from the paper pad.
When my boys were little we had a brook running through the farm and (although they never caught anything!!) loved nothing more than fishing with their nets!!

The inspiration came from here

Fussy and Fancy #140 - Fun in the sun
Paperbabe #13 - Brights
Noor #7 - Here comes summer
Through the purple haze - Bright Colours
Without Words - Summer Holidays
(Hope it's not too "fussy" Squirrel...delete if so!!)

Hope your day is as sunny as the one on my card!! xx

Love that you HAD to craft! Know how that feels and isn't it great when you are inspired like this. Such a sweet image, beautifully coloured as ever. Love the scribbled grass DP and how you matched it with your colouring on the image. :)
